Review:

Provocative, innovative and creative describe Ms. Church’s Diary of a Library Nerd. The first chapter of this story is a bit off putting to read. This is in first person, from Charlotte’s point of view. It’s about a Charlotte aka Char, a librarian, who writes in her diary about her day.  Sometimes she writes about her boring day which includes calling her bitch of a boss, Pigface.  What is amusing is when Charlotte includes pictures to accompanying her diary entries. What is hawt is when Charlotte reveals her sexual proclivities. It’s smoking hawt when the sexual scenes are accompanied by her sexual drawings.

This is one of the few adult books I’ve read where there are applicable drawings interwoven throughout the story. The style this story is written is quite appealing. To read about Charlotte’s life as she goes through her sexual journey with not one but two men is fabulous. The kink in this story is delicious and intoxicating. The power Charlotte feels when she orders Nathan to her bidding is so good. She’s just learning and coming into her femdom. Charlotte is a dirty mistress getting off on her boy toy.

When this story twists to include Charlotte’s erotic exchange in submission to a sexual dominant, Edward, it kicks this story up a notch. It’s well done how Charlotte’s character struggles to balance her desires as she’s learning more about the kinky side of life. Her experimentations and confessions of guilty desires brings her closer to the reader. When she pulls together a ménage, a reader may become giddy with the carnal heat. Definitely Charlotte is exploring erotic fantasies many women dream about in the privacy of their bedroom. Here is Charlotte, letting go and exploring to her animalistic delight.

I’m captivated by the writing voice. I’m pulled in as Charlotte experiences highs and lows. The kinky sex is bewitching. The graphic pictures are tempting. This is the kind of diary I wish I could have written as a young adult. This is the kind of life I wish I had experienced as a college student. This is the kind of life which many a reader will vicariously enjoy. Honestly, I can see this as a movie or a mini-series on TV. I hope an aspiring movie director reads this book and wants to produce it. I’d watch the movie. Highly recommended to kinky readers who know the quiet ones are the ones to keep an eye on.

Review:

Celia is one of the most fascinating characters I’ve ever read. She has a preference, something that gets in the way of her relationships and her self-esteem. No matter who she’s with or what she does, she can’t be touched. Ever. Yet, she is highly sexual, constantly masturbating, an exhibitionist and disconcerts herself with her sexual needs. I almost didn’t continue with the story when it opened with a desperate gambit that she uses to get her needs met. A gambit that involves using another person’s emotions and telling a lot of lies. But Celia has become isolated and lonely, knowing what her limits are and can’t get her needs met any other way.

This book is one of the most emotional and heart wrenching stories I’ve seen in this genre. This is erotica, not erotic romance, though the touching scenes are so beautiful it’s painful. The author’s gift with the English language is tremendous and I was caught up immediately. There is no filter in this story, no rosy picture of pretty love in pink ribbons. This is raw, visceral love that can gut a person in a heartbeat. The sex scenes aren’t just random hot moments, but emotional journeys negotiating a labyrinth of need, passion, sex and pain.

I can’t say too much more without revealing spoilers which would ruin the book for you, but I will say this. The heartbreaking hope in this story was palpable. The characters are real and complicated. And the story is compelling. I highly recommend this book, though it’s not light reading so if you’re looking for fluff, wait until you’re not.

I’ve never read this author and I’m going to remedy that immediately. This was an amazing story that left me completely stunned and emotionally drained after reading it. And yet, like some of the best literature, it has lingered in my mind and heart in a wonderful, tragic way.

SWEET. SWEETER. by Kyoko Church is the first story in the MADE FOR HIRE anthology. Domestic bliss takes on a whole new meaning when an unexpected infatuation suddenly brings another man into Laura’s life. Now, she needs to make some decisive choices…lest she end up in a very sticky situation.

Review:

Sweet. Sweeter. By Kyoko Church is a story of one woman’s desire to be treated like a lover instead of a convenience for her boyfriend. But instead of finding a solid lover in her boyfriend she finds solace in teaching an eighteen year old boy the pleasures that a woman’s body can bring him and the pleasures he can bring her. It takes more to be a Mistress than simply wanting to be one or calling herself a Mistress. Teaching a young boy about his body and pleasure does not a Mistress make.

Kyoko Church’s sexual scenes are lackluster at best and require more imagination when it comes to the storyline itself. This short story though decent is not a BDSM novel. Using terms such as Mistress does not make this a BDSM novel. Even though the story itself has potential it is not fully developed.

Review:

The Sweetest Revenge by Lucy Felthouse and illustrated by John LaChatte was not what I would truly call a BDSM themed book. The main character Abigail has the hots for a regular courier for her office who seems to have a rather harsh attitude towards others. This book has a couple of really hot short kink scenes that catches the reader’s attention but only for a brief moment in time. The single illustration in the book, though hot, and depicts the spankalicious scene a lot better than the author’s words seemed out of place to me. Furthermore, the short story leaves the story hanging in a very odd place.

Synopsis:

Maddie Templeton has always been an unconventional artist. Themes of submission and domination pulse through her erotic artwork, and she has happily explored these lustful themes both on and off the canvas. But, when Theo Hunter enters her life, she is presented with a new challenge. Maddie sets out to test his resolve as she teases, torments and toys with him. However, as Maddie drives Theo to breaking point, she soon becomes unsure whether her own resolve will hold out! At the same time, Maddie must put on the exhibition of a lifetime. As the hottest gallery in town clamors for her best work, Maddie pushes her models harder and higher until they are physically, sexually and emotionally exhausted. Will Maddie’s models continue to submit to her, or will she push them too far? And will she be ready for the exhibition in time? The only way to find out is to wait and see…and the waiting only makes it sweeter!

Review:

This book is very crafty. The author did a magnificent job tempting and teasing the reader and the sexual tension between all the characters was off the charts. The author also did a fabulous job as she weaved the supporting characters into the book in a way that helped make the book more realistic and ramped up the sexual tension.

This book is filled with text sex and phone sex. Phone sex and text sex might work wonderful in the real world but I don’t think it translates well into paper.It was very choppy and lacked a lot of heat it was supposed to bring to the story.

The author built the sexual tension between Maddie and Theo to the point that Theo would do whatever Maddie wanted.  I truly expected a big fulfilling sex scene between the two that was hot and spicy. Boy, was I wrong. I finished the book very cranky and dissatisfied with how the story ended. I was very disappointed that we never got to read how all the promises Maddie made to Theo worked out. It makes one wonder if she really planned on fulfilling any of them in the end.

Named and Shamed Book Blurb:

Once upon a time, a naughty girl called Tansy stole a very precious manuscript from a kindly antiquarian. But all of the world’s ancient and powerful magic, lost for centuries, has returned…and now there is much more at stake than a few sheets of parchment!

Thus begins a rude and rugged fairytale the likes of which you NEVER read when you were little! Poor Tansy is led though the most pleasurable trials and the most shameful tribulations as her quest unfolds before her. Orgasmic joy and abject humiliation are laid upon Tansy in equal measure as she straddles the two worlds of magic and man.

Review:

I’ve just finished reading the most amazing book that has graced my e-book reader in a long time. Named and Shamed by Janine Ashbless is a fairytale filled with the most decadent acts of, debauchery, lust and erotica. The female character finds herself stuck between two worlds, human and magical, searching for the answer she need to release herself from a curse.

The book is superbly written, the storyline is captivating on more than one level and the presentation of the book is unique with its included illustrations, by John LaChatte. I did wonder whether the inclusion of sketches would be distracting but found that, if anything, they added to my reading pleasure by providing a visual link to the scenes unfolding before me.  There were no noticeable editing errors which sometimes occur in e-book formats and the story was pacey and drew me in from beginning to end.

The BDSM and sexual acts included in this story left nothing to the imagination and increased in intensity as the storyline progressed. The book was so full of down and dirty encounters if I tried to list them all I’d fail, but to give you an idea of what’s included I’ll list a few. Dubious consent, ménages, group sex, acts of humiliation and shaming, gangbangs, Dominance and submission, whips, bondage, slavery, and the list goes on. The author of this book incorporated the kink superbly into the plot. Yes, there are a multitude of acts but they all manage to enhance the storyline and develop the heroine’s character until the climatic (no pun intended) end where she must face who she is.

Named and Shamed is an excellent read but some of the acts are pretty hardcore. It’s possibly worth mentioning there is also F/F, M/F/F, M/F interactions throughout the book and that doesn’t include the acts performed with non-gender-specific magical creatures. So, if you like a sweet and pleasant BDSM read with nothing shocking in it you might give this one a miss. However, if you’re like me and don’t mind a read that borders on the wilder side of sexuality and the BDSM lifestyle, then rush out a grab this book now.
